Topic: Seventh Generation console match up

Well, with talk of the two newest consoles coming out and the 360 selling
which one is callin' to y'all
Personally I'm waiting on the Wii just because Xbox is too expensive and I really don't think Sony needs to be in the video game market.
Of course Nintendo's will be the least expensive out of the three although I hope they don't rely on the Super Smash Bros to be their major source of market for the duration. I might get it but that's because it has Medanite[from kirby doubt that's spelled right]

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

I've played the 360 some, and I don't really see how it's better than the regular X-Box except that I love the little button in the center of the controller. So when the X-Box overheats and I need to reboot it I just have to push the button in and hold it and the unit turns off, then I push it again and it turns on. big_smile I also love the visuals it displays while a cd is playing. But the only things I play on X-Box are KOTOR and GTA. I haven't really gotten into any other X-Box games.

I want a Wii, just cause I like Nintendo games.

I don't want a PS3. I don't even have a PS2. And I rarely played PS1. I mean, there are a handful of games I kinda wish I still had a PS for, such as Demolitions and the TPM game. But otherwise, I don't really care what PS does. (though psps are kinda cool)

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

My mom bought a PS2...just so she could play DDR whenever she wanted.  We don't use it for anything else.  lol
I personally dislike consoles as a whole, simply because I have more fun with a keyboard and mouse than a controller (especially for shooters and strategy games).  Good gaming computers are expensive, I admit, but you can always do a lot more with a good computer than a good console (word processing and Photoshopping, to name a few). 
Should I actually figure out how a keyboard/mouse is supposed to work with an X-box, I might consider buying one...or convince my brother to hurry up and get a gamecube so I can play Smash Brothers Melee whenever I want...

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

My brother uses his X-Box to play some online Final Fantasy game. It looks fairly easy to do. He says that there's a few USB ports on the 360 that you can plug a keyboard into. And then I think there's some cord you can use to connect the unit to the harddrive, cause I remember he had some trouble with it at first. But I'm no expert on it. Oh, he also still uses the regular controller to move around with. I would assume if there's usb ports you could hook a mouse up as well? I don't know.

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

I've got a USB mouse so...yeah.  I've got to give it a try at my friends house this weekend. (LAN party big_smile )
I just wonder how the console will recognize standard keyboard controls as controller movements (WASD and such)...

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

I think the only reason I'd ever buy a Playstation anything is for the Anime games, Ghost in the Shell, titles they don't put on any other system like Gundam games.
I can't play computer games very well, I just stopped trying after a while, although Age of Mythology is pretty fun.

Besides the 360 is an ugly piece of junk in my opinion. But hey, whatever floats your boats.

It took over because it's better.  It doesn't take a genius to figure that out.  I dislike PS because the controllers arte crappy, and Xbox statistically appeals to older (cooler) gamers, while the PS appeals to adolescents and preteens for some strange reason.  Though it's probably because PS has more T rated sports and racing games, while Xbox has more M rated shooters and action games.

  I have tried PC gaming, I really have, but the way I see it is that consoles are made for gaming, while computers were made for everything else.  Hence the extremely uncomfortable keyboard and mouse, (to me at least) which are designed for typing and surfing, whereas controllers are ergonomically designed (except PS.  I get serious hand cramps from using those damn controllers) to use while gaming.  That's my opinion.  *Flips rant switch off*

I agree with you on that. I've tried playing games on the computer, I'm just not good at using a mouse. (same problem I'm having with Resident Evil, is the weird maneuvering, I'm used to turning the stick and moving with that) And remembering if it was A or Z I used to shoot and hoping that when the monster jumps at me I can have the reflexes and ability to hit the right one. Whereas on a regular controller there's only a handful of buttons, which are spaced out enough that you hit the right one.

However, I love playing Sim games for PC. Those were designed for PC! I don't like the games like Busting Out and Urbz. They're ok to play, but they're not that great. Sims 2 for Gamecube is really good, though, I think.

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

I have a laptop with a pad instead, it's a little easier but it irritates my skin if I use it too long. Computers really haven't been desgined for gameplay.

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

I hate pads, they make my fingers burn really badly, even if I don't touch it very often.

Yup, I had the exact same problem with RE, but it's so dang long I eventually got the hang of it.  Great series though.

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

Now that the Wii and PS3 are out and they have had a little time to develop, what is your people's favourite console?  I like the 360 because of game choice for one.

P.S. Thanks to Draco and his superior searching skills for referring me to this topic tongue

Re: Seventh Generation console match up

The Wii alows you to play a myriad of old games from the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, and a few others that I cannot think of. I do not have the Wii, but I'm pretty sure that all of the old games are completely free.

take it easy baby take it as it comes
